Obituary for Maribell Joan White

Maribell Joan White, 91, passed away peacefully at her home in Versailles on Sunday, October 21, 2018. She was born on April 8, 1927 in Independence, Kansas, the daughter of the late Willie Nathan and Winifred Irene Compton White. Maribell earned her Registered Nursing Degree in 1949 and later received her Occupational Therapist certification. In 1963 she moved to Kentucky to work for the Department of Health and Welfare until her retirement in 1989.

Maribell was a consummate seamstress, designer of needlepoint, and an expert in knitting, crochet, embroidery and cut work. She designed and painted most of her own work. She was a theatrical costume designer early in her life. She hand knitted replica dolls which all won blue ribbons at the county fair. Maribell hand knitted the Little Red Riding Hood and Big Bad Wolf figures for the Woodford County Library. Maribell also oversaw the group effort, design of each, and stitched many of the needlepoint cushions and kneelers in her beloved church, St. John’s Episcopal Church in Versailles, Kentucky.
